Sika Acquires ICS Garland
Lyndhurst, NJ — Sika Corp. has acquired the commercial and industrial polymer flooring business of ICS Garland, Inc. Revenues for this business totaled approximately US $14-million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007. With its second acquisition in North America this year, Sika has added another long-respected player into its Industrial Flooring business in this region.

The ICS Garland polymer flooring business, with its strong portfolio of epoxy, polyurethane, and ESD technology products, is an excellent fit for Sika's focused growth strategy for North America. With an established, well-respected range of products, people, and quality applicators, the ICS Garland polymer flooring business greatly enhances and complements Sika's fast-growing position in this key market.

Approximately 45 employees are expected to join Sika as part of the transaction, including the ICS Garland manufacturing facility and offices in Cleveland, Ohio.

Already a global leader in construction chemicals including adhesives and sealants, concrete admixtures, repair and strengthening products, this acquisition also creates for Sika the most comprehensive range of epoxy, polyurethane, and other key polymer flooring products and technologies in the industry. Sika is confident that the ICS Garland flooring business, when combined with Sika's broad offering of sales and support services, will enable Sika to offer even greater value to its polymer flooring customers.
